Species text
The species is widely distributed in southern England, but with some records in the north. It is local and uncommon although the spider may occur in numbers, especially on chalk grassland and dunes. In the agricultural lowlands of southern England it is very locally distributed and rare, and there are only a handful of sites in Essex. A. cuneata occurs on old and unimproved grasslands and dunes, especially where there are areas of sparsely vegetated ground, short turf and lichen heath. References
